PITTSBURGH - The in-game race phenomenon began in Milwaukee with the sausages, extended to Washington with the presidents, and has found a home at PNC Park with pierogi. What else in the Steel City?
Jalapeño Hannah won on Sunday. The race is a tradition that dates back to 1999 at Three Rivers Stadium. The pierogi battle the sausages during Pirates-Brewers games, and the presidents have been known to make the trek with the Nationals to Pittsburgh, too.
All of this prompts the question: What race can the Phillies adopt at Citizens Bank Park? A competition of Tastykakes? Cheesesteaks? Crazy former mayors?
